Texas First Pledge Signers Win Primaries, Advance To General Election

Published on


Tuesday night was a historic evening for the Texas Nationalist Movement as many of the Texas First Pledge signers were victorious in their elections despite strident opposition from the establishment and the mainstream media. 

A large number of candidates who signed the Texas First Pledge will move on to the General Election or face run-offs. 

“We are beyond proud of the candidates who won their elections tonight while putting Texas FIRST,” says TNM President Daniel Miller. “These men and women are Texians who are refusing to cower or back down to outside pressure from dark money establishment groups, and they are dominating the elections as a result.”

This unprecedented success comes just after The Dallas Morning News released a hit piece attempting to delegitimize these candidates and the TNM. The piece told voters to “beware” of the “worrying number of candidates” who have signed our pledge and went so far as to call it “unpatriotic.” The piece was full of pearl-clutching and was based on a deep misunderstanding of the beliefs around Texas First, frankly showing how out of touch the editorial board is with Texans.

Several candidates faced aggressive campaigns against them. Notably, incumbent State Representative Glenn Rogers criticized Mike Olcott for endorsing TNM President Daniel Miller in his 2022 Lt. Governor campaign and for backing a referendum on Texas’ independence. Additionally, numerous establishment Political Action Committees launched an extensive series of mailings criticizing their support for the pledge. Yet, the news coming out of Super Tuesday speaks for itself. All of those candidates who were directly attacked over signing the pledge won their race or are now headed into a runoff.

“The Dallas Morning News and other insane tactics tried to stop Texas First Pledge signers from winning their elections, and they failed,” Miller said. “It just shows how out of touch their editorial board is. Truly, no one cares about their opinion according to today’s election results.” 

With the results from this morning carrying on into today, support for a vote on TEXIT could be stronger in Austin than ever before. 

 “It’s an absolutely electric feeling. Texans want Texas First,” stated Miller.
